Purchased this vehicle because of reliability, this is third Lexus purchased. We needed third row seats and wanted DVD for grandchild. GX 470 has ample power to tow heavy trailers and climb steep mountain roads. Gas mileage and ho hum agility are the only downsides but have IS 300 for daily use and it gets 20-26 mpg.
Third row seats, AWD, navigation system, great sound system. Ultimate comfort on long trips.
Rear door is hinged wrong for American drivers, it blocks the curb as it is hinged on the right. Solution would be to hinge at the top and have power opener like the RX series.
